Christian and Rachel are fairly new to Chicago, so they’ve yet to establish any go-to places that are particularly special to them. And as a Chicago newbie myself, I can totally relate! It always takes a while to find those meaningful places after a move. So we decided to shoot their maternity photos at their apartment, and I couldn’t be happier with the choice! There’s just something so special about capturing people in their natural element like this. I feel like a maternity session is an especially great time to do a lifestyle session such as this. Your life is about to make a drastic – albeit wonderful – change. So this is the perfect time to document those seemingly normal routine moments that you enjoy pre-baby. It makes for some special photos that you’ll undoubtedly treasure down the road.
